    My book NIGHT VISION is shipping!

    I virtually never post in the main forum here, spending my time in Rave Recs, but I wanted to mention this to as many people here as possible.

    My new night photography book Night Vision is shipping!

    It's a mass-market project and will be in stock at hundreds of brick and mortar Barnes & Noble and Borders stores all over the US this week.

    Visit my site to click thru to buy discount copies at amazon.com, or signed copies directly from me.

    Published and distributed by Chronicle Books, the 10x9 softcover book is 144 pages long, containing 115 excellent reproductions of my light-painted night images shot in abandoned locations all over the American west. Rounding out the project are essays on the derelict Byron Hot Springs Hotel, the abandoned desert roadside, decommissioned military installations, the abandoned Southern Pacific Train Station in Downtown Oakland, CA, Aviation Warehouse, an aircraft boneyard in the high desert of Southern California, and a longer piece on the history and philosophical mind-set of UE, and the strange attraction of creeping through abandoned military-industrial complexes in the middle of the night.

    Architecture critic and futurist Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG composed a thought provoking and flattering forward. It's an elegantly laid out and beautifully printed piece, a tremendous leap in quality from my first book. You will not be disappointed.

    Thanks for the support of all my pals here at AR.

    Thanks. If I was you, I'd order it from amazon.com because it's cheaper and you are guaranteed of getting it.

    I guess I should order the book after that wisecrack huh?

    Truthfully people, I've seen samples of his photography that he's posted links to in the RR forum, and it's really some interesting and abstract work. Definately worth checking out.

    Congrats Troy. Good luck with the sales. I've seen a few of your pics. Great work. I'm going to poke my head into your site now to check it out.

    Beautiful work, Troy! Enjoyed the oeuvre very much and will get the book as soon as things even out around here....

    I have a friend who runs a studio around the corner. He has been an avid photographer ever since he was a boy and has accumulated a number of snaps, many of them quite nice, that he has blown up to enormous dimensions. His signature piece is digital shot of a dandelion puffball. From him and his associates, I have learned that photography of the sort you (and he) produce is extremely hard and painstaking work. So, kudos to you and good luck!

    Troy I am enjoying Night Vision. I have so many favorites right away. "Hot Spots" and "Cindy and Jeff" are two early favorites. I enjoy your vision and your images. Great work.
